Anambra 2017: Comrade Harris Chuma accepts Obiano's offer decamps to APGA from APC reports that governorship aspirant and chieftain of All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Harris Chuma, who is a well-known opponent and critic of the governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano, shocked the people of Ogbunike in Oyi Local Government Area of the state with his public defection from APC to APGA and open declaration of his support for Chief Willie Obiano to continue in office after the scheduled November 2017 elections.
            The declaration which obviously took many people unaware, including the wife of the governor of Anambra State, Chief (Mrs.) Ebelechukwu Obiano, took place recently during the commissioning of CAFÉ market toilet project in Ogbunike community which was executed under the auspices of the First Lady's NGO, Caring Family Enhancement Initiative (CAFÉ) at Oye-Olisa, Ogbunike.
  The Anambra born Lagos based politician said that he decided to come to his home first and make an open and unequivocal declaration before going to the state level to re-enforce his new political move.

            According to him, "I did not just come home because I heard that the wife of the governor is commissioning toilet. I decided to come and make an open declaration before our people. I am an active member of APC. If you google me, you will know that I am a Tinubu man, an active APC member. But I have noticed that I am backing the wrong horse . I am on a mission. I want to state it in the open, before our people, that I have formally decamped to APGA and I am supporting Willie Obiano because I am now convinced that he is doing a good job. I have never met Obiano and I have never met his wife, Osodieme, before now. I want to assure our everybody that I am no longer campaigning against Obiano".

            Comrade Harris also called on all sons and daughters of Ogbunike to support the governor for proving beyond doubt that he has the interest of Anambra at heart. "Everyone should vote for him during the coming elections", he emphasized even as his declaration was greeted with resounding applause from the crowd.

        Reacting to the sudden turn of events, an elated wife of the governor said that he could not hide her surprise and sent her aides to bring APGA uniform for her and her team to decorate Comrade Harris, the newest APGA faithful.
            Said Mrs. Obiano, “What he has done today is remarkable. He has stated it in the open. APGA is not just a political party but stands for Igbo identity. I thank him for his courage.

            "I wish to use this opportunity to tell all our brothers and sisters to come together and identify with peace and progress in Anambra. I also thank our Governor, the National Chairman and party officials whose works are attracting men and women of goodwill into APGA. It shows that the legacies of our founding fathers will remain."
